When I heard the result of this one, I was in a hotel room in Liverpool the night before appearing on a BBC TV quiz show. Vinny led a 74-yard drive in the final 1:19 that culminated in Bruce Hill's 11-yard TD reception.
The Vikings had a chance to win it in overtime, but Paul Gruber partially blocked ex-Buc Donald Igwebuike's 48-yard fieldgoal. Wayne Haddix then intercepted a deflected Rich Gannon pass, and Steve Christie kicked the game winner with 5:49 left in overtime.
Even the tying extra point had been a nervy one, as a holding penalty made it equivalent to a 30-yarder for the Bucs' rookie kicker.
